Well Done

In the Land of Saints and Sinners shows perfectly how you make a solid movie without putting billions into special effects and explosions - just tell an old tale new with the help of a superb cast. Especially the acting shines bright in this little flick and makes the story and the characters believable. No doubt, for someone just wanting lots of bum bum and computer generated gimmicks a la Fast and Furios or Tom Cruise's quests on high octane, this won't work to well, but for someone who wants a well told story, this one will do and provide plenty. Not an excellent one but a good one for sure.

terrific Irish actors

It's 1974 Northern Ireland. IRA members Doireann McCann (Kerry Condon), her brother Curtis June, and two others plant a bomb in Belfast. It kills the target but also some innocent kids. They are trying to hide out in remote County Donegal. Finbar Murphy (Liam Neeson) is a local killer executing for corrupt cop Robert McQue (Colm Meaney). Finbar is tired of killing. When he encounters an abusived girl, he goes back to his killing way. The abuser turns out to be Curtis June and Doireann is out for revenge. Vincent O'Shea (Ciarán Hinds) is another policeman.

It's a pretty simple revenge killing plot. I expected some more compelling twists. The Northern Ireland and family history could be more visceral. On the plus side, these are great Irish actors doing their normal great level of work. The most intriguing part may be the trees. I do like Doireann confronting Robert although I like it more for the mother. This movie has the actors and the place and the killings. I would like more surprises.

Diversity in 1974 Donegal?

Disappointing to see the almost obligatory diversity character, an African fiddle player - in 1974 Donegal? I was in Ireland in 1981 and travelled from Cork to Connemara in1986 and never saw one black person, today you would but not 50 years ago. Why do they feel the need to re write history like this and pretend there were black people in the depths of rural Ireland in the 70's. Apart from that the character added nothing more than being a jokey token and stuck out like a sore thumb. Ridiculous and unnecessary. Apart from that it held my attention and the location shotes were nostalgically nice to see.
